Munin Monitor Tesla Powerwall/Solar info using local API

Who this is for:

Tesla Solar owners with Powerwalls, with the Powerwall on your local network on a known IP address (ie reserved IP via dhcp), and your munin software also running on your local network

Get Open Weather Map API key (for cloud cover)

Get a free api key if you want to include cloud cover Pct in the graph here 

Install Powerwall2PVOutput

See https://github.com/ekul135/Powerwall2PVOutput for install details. You’ll need to copy the code to your Munin plugin directory (/usr/share/munin/plugins) and edit PW_Config.py to have your local powerwall user, password, and local IP address.¬† See this page for info.

Munin Plugin code:

If all goes well, you’ll get fun graphs to watch, like these:
